Hi everybody, here is my update with my naturalisation application:

Application Timeline
Eligibility criteria: 6 years(Ancestry) + 2 years ILR
Method of application: NCS Southampton
Date of application: 13 March 2014 (Sorry, my previous submission had April, it is March)
Date of receipt by UKBA: 17 March 2014
Date of debit of fees: 17th March 2014
Date of receipt of acknowledgement: 17th March 2014
Date of receipt of approval: 29th March 2014
Date of Ceremony: 13th May 2014

I was really expecting a sort of 6 week wait time, but it is all concluded within 3 weeks of sending the application in. Now we just have 5 weeks to wait before we can attend the ceremony, which is a bummer as I was hoping to get this all concluded by the end April, but hey, all done and dusted, finally!


So hopefully we should start receiving ours soon.

Good luck!

Mohamed
First of all, congratulations. Are you saying you got it in 12 days!! I've never heard anybody get it less than 2 weeks!!! WOW
It is not me, it is Adventurer101. Found it in the above topic 'Naturalisation application processing timelines (only)', so I thought it will be a good idea to share it with March applicants.
